13 August 2016

The world's largest book festival takes place every August in Edinburgh and our members are always well represented with their books on sale in the festival bookshops and their authors taking part in events. 

EIBF hosts various events at other times of the year and also runs the Booked! programme which takes theEdinburgh International Book Festival on the road around Scotland, throughout the year, supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

This year's festival runs from 13 to 29 August. For more details, see the EIBF website.


This year our Publishing Scotland event at EIBF celebrated our buildings book by book.

Where: Garden Theatre, EIBF Charlotte Square

When: Tuesday 23 August 2016 from 17:45 to 18:45

For the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, we celebrated the brave and bold ways in which publishers are bringing innovative design and Scotland's architectural heritage to new audiences. Publishers James Crawford of HES and Adrian Searle of Freight Books presented their work and discussed the ways in which their design-led books and publishing contribute both to the reading experience and to an appreciation of our built environment.

Heather McDaid has written about the event on her blog Heather Writes.
